On Sunday evening and Monday morning, network broadcasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS celebrated Joe Biden “fighting back” against President Trump’s efforts to “weaponize” suspicious foreign business deals by the former Vice President’s son. Reporters also touted Hunter Biden’s pledge to quit the board of a Chinese-backed company as an attempt “to rob the President of a key talking point.”
Despite that there were still few facts known and a whole lot of speculation about the allegations made by the anonymous and so-called “Trump whistleblower,” ABC and NBC were more than willing to throw their weight behind the effort. Their Sunday coverage seemed to come at the behest of former Vice President Joe Biden, who on Saturday yelled at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and demanded the press “ask the right question” about President Trump.
MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin's assertion that President Trump would prefer immigration from "Nordic countries" drew a pushback from NBC correspondent Kelly O'Donnell on Monday morning.
On Monday morning, MSNBC repeatedly touted House Democrats holding hearings to try to keep the Mueller Report in the news after the results of Special Counsel’s Russia investigation disappointed liberal lawmakers and reporters. The coverage claimed President Trump’s political opponents were simply “educating the public” and “bringing the Mueller to life” with the partisan stunt.
NBC political director Chuck Todd lamented the “real dilemma” Congressional Democrats had on their hands following the Special Counsel finding no collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia. During NBC’s Sunday Today, Todd opined about how the Democrats had to decide whether or not they wanted to chase their dreams of impeachment, and come to terms with the “unintended consequences” for each scenario.
Minutes before President Trump announced a deal to end the partial government shutdown Friday afternoon, the anchors and correspondents on MSNBC were beside themselves with glee over the development, cheering it as a “ginormous win” for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
If there’s one thing the anti-Trump resistance members in the liberal media love more than themselves, it’s praising other like-minded people protesting the President. And if it’s people from another country, that’s even better. NBC demonstrated that love during Sunday Today when White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell praises a dangerous aerial stunt at Trump’s Scotland resort as “spectacular.”
Showing how delusional CNN and MSNBC are with wall-to-wall coverage of Roseanne Barr’s deranged, racist tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett, it took until at least the ninth question in Wednesday’s White House Press Briefing for the now-fired ABC star to come up.
Saturday night was the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner and the take away from the event was that comedian Michelle Wolf was a vile person. She targeted White House staff for ridicule that went beyond friendly jabs, such as when she ‘joked’ about putting adviser Kellyanne Conway under a falling tree or the ‘joke’ about murdering babies. The event drew great condemnation from average Americans and praise from the media elites. But during Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl denounced Wolf.
After the media were initially slow to give attention to anti-government protests in Iran that have been running for three days, on Saturday evening the NBC Nightly News led with the story and put its competitors on ABC and CBS to shame as ABC's World News Tonight only gave the story 21 seconds, and the CBS Weekend News ignored the story completely. CBS did, however, find time to air its third full report in three consecutive days devoted to fretting over the possibility that private charities will suffer as a result of the Republican tax cut plan.
With the national discussion centered on sexual harassment and sexual assault, many in the liberal media had been itching to get to the allegations directed at the President. The media seemed to have recently gotten the ‘okay’ to pursue the claims when Hillary Clinton brought them up in a radio interview. It’s hypocritical for Clinton to lead the charge because of her philanderer husband with a rape charge, but that wasn’t a problem for NBC’s Sunday Today, which disregarded it using Clinton’s defense.
Since Friday, when CNN first reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team had secured an indictment, the liberal media had been running rampant with speculation about who it was for and how it would topple President Trump. And during ABC’s Sunday Good Morning America, they appeared giddy that the indictment could go all the way up. Yet, on NBC’s Sunday Today, they noted how the indictment could be for something “unrelated” to the Russia investigation.
